Strange one this - police looking for missing 5 year old seen walking alone and a mother frantically searching for her.

http://www.itv.com/news/tyne-tees/2017-07-21/concern-after-five-year-old-girl-spotted-walking-along-road-in-redcar/

Then we have this ITV update, most odd..



21 July 2017 at 2:15pm

Police update after sightings of young girl in Redcar

Cleveland Police received a call on Friday morning from a concerned member of the public. He said he had seen a young girl aged around 5-years-old walking along the Coast Road in Redcar.

Police in Redcar have carried out thorough investigations and searches however they have now scaled back these investigations, pending any new information coming to light.

There have been no reports of missing children in the Redcar area or any other calls relating to a missing girl

So is this a hoax??

It sounds like a hoax.

Did anyone speak to the woman? If not, how was it known that she was searching for her daughter?

Sadly it Looks like they may have found the remains of Natalee Holloway after 12 years missing. I have watched various documentaries and her mother Beth doing all she could to find her, and she has hosted a programme which was about other missing people.


Natalee Holloway: Human remains find could end 12-year mystery of missing graduate


DNA tests are being conducted to see if the mystery of Natalee Holloway, who vanished in Aruba in 2005, can finally be resolved.

There is something about the phrase "last seen with a convicted murderer" that says this was solved very quickly, the hard part was finding the body and getting proof.

The REAL strange thing is, that presumably her father and a detective found [just before a doc airing early next week ...], what could be human remains, but then exported it out of the country, instead involving / turning over to local police and forensic scientists. In fact, they could be prosecuted for that ...

This lady just seems to have vanished.......


'I’m desperate'
Missing mum Karen Brown fails to show up after heartbroken hubby pleaded her to meet him at London toy shop

Jock Brown, 48, urged his wife Karen to meet him at Hamleys in the city’s Regent Street after a possible sighting of her was captured on CCTV at the store



MISSING mum Karen Brown failed to show up after her heartbroken hubby pleaded for her to meet him at a London toy shop.
Jock Brown, 48, urged his wife Karen to meet him at Hamleys in the city’s Regent Street after a possible sighting of her was captured on CCTV at the store.

Karen, 47, vanished from their Clydebank home on October 14, and took a bus to the capital.
Speaking outside the store, shattered Jock said:”Karen is desperately missed by myself and my daughters.

I’ve been with her 30-plus years – her boyfriend, then her husband – and I’m desperate to have her back.”
“She is missing her granddaughter growing up.
“The house is not the same without her. It has been a struggle.”

And he urged her: “We need you home. Come home for us Karen.”
Cops confirmed they are still investigating the disappearance, and appealed to Karen to contact them after the toy shop disappointment yesterday.
Karen was last seen by hubby Jock and daughter Chloe the night before she vanished after she finished working a shift at Asda.

By the time Jock woke up the next day, she was gone.
Security camera footage captured Karen getting on a MegaBus to London from Glasgow’s Buchanan Street at 8.20am that morning. And worried Jock called the police later that day when he expected her back after work.

Karen wore a pink fleece and white trainers when she was last seen and was carrying an Asda bag.
Detectives spotted a woman wearing similar clothes – plus a padded burgundy jacket – was seen on cameras at Hamleys on Tuesday, October 17.

Daughters Chloe, 12, and Jemma, 22 appeared with granddaughter Millie to join Jock at a previous press conference to appeal for Karen to come home.
A spokesperson for Police Scotland said: “Karen did not make contact with her husband whilst he was in London today.
“Our search for her is continuing and we would again appeal to her to get in touch, at least with police, to let us know she is okay.”

A strange case.

So it wasn't definite that the woman at Hamleys was her anyway.

It's sure though that she did get on a bus to London; it seems a clear case of she's had enough of her present life and wants to move on.

I was at uni nearby when this went down, but can't remember hearing any theories about what happened.

Twenty-five years on, I've still no idea - aside from being convinced she didn't drown in the lake.

A strange sounding case here.

http://www.mirror.co.uk/news/uk-news/fears-child-abduction-manchester-fireworks-11474414

Presumably someone reported seeing a child being put in a car unwillingly but if no parents have come forward to say their child is missing, then it's likely to be a false alarm.

It doesn't seem to be 100% confirmed that it is him but in all probability it is.

Oh dear, that story about the dog - who knows what desperate measures anyone of us would take to survive.

Yes, here is the telegraph article.


Gaia Pope: 49-year-old man arrested on suspicion of murder '110 per cent innocent', say family


16 November 2017 • 6:37pm





A 49-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of the murder of Gaia Pope, Dorset Police have said.

The arrest was announced hours after police found "items of women's clothing" in a field.

Dorset Police said the suspect, who is believed to know Miss Pope, was arrested on Thursday afternoon. The suspect was named by his own family as Paul Elsey, 49, who is the uncle of Nathan Elsey, a 19-year-old actor and friend of Miss Pope.

Greg Elsey, the suspect's father, said his son was '110 per cent innocent'. Mr Elsey said he had travelled from his home in Romsey in Hampshire to Poole in Dorset to pick up his son and take him to a law firm. He was then arrested.

Mr Elsey said: "It's disgusting how the police have performed. I wanted to make sure Paul had got legal representation before he was taken away. I asked Paul before he was arrested if he was all right. He said 'yes, I'm fine'.

"He's protested his innocence 110 per cent and I have 110 per cent belief that he will be released when they find out he has done nothing."

A major inquiry is under way to find Gaia, 19, who vanished from the Swanage area of Dorset on the afternoon of November 7.



Detective Superintendent Paul Kessell, of Dorset police, said: "We have arrested a 49-year-old man on suspicion of murder. He is believed to be known to Gaia and from the Swanage area.






"Also today a member of the public identified clothing south of Priestly Road in Swanage similar to that worn by Gaia."

Police said the clothing was found at 10.28am on Thursday by a member of the public in an area of open land north of the coastal path near Swanage.

The owner of the clothes has not yet been identified, but detectives have informed Miss Pope's family of the find.

Detective Chief Inspector Neil Devoto, who is leading the investigation, said: "Following the discovery of these items of clothing, a full and thorough search will now take place in the field and surrounding area.

"We have seized the clothing and investigations will now be carried out to identify who they belong to.

"We have updated Gaia's family who continue to be supported by specially-trained officers. Our thoughts remain with them at this very difficult time."

Mr Devoto added: "We are doing everything possible to try and locate Gaia.

"I would like to renew my appeal to anyone who has information about where Gaia is or what has happened to her to please contact Dorset Police.

"I am also urging anyone who has seen any suspicious activity in the area of Morrison Road and Priests Way since November 7 to please contact us."



Cockerell/PA




Earlier, Miss Pope's father, Richard Sutherland, made an emotional appeal to find his daughter and said he just wanted a "big hug" from her.






"I can tell you this that the family is united together in this and we are united with the police and united with the public," Mr Sutherland told ITV News.

"I can't tell you how grateful we are to everybody out there, it's unbelievable."

Mr Sutherland added: "Gaia, you know we love you, you know that. I just want that big hug please, I just want a big hug. We'll get you back and we'll have that big hug."

On Wednesday, the teenager's mother, Natasha Pope, urged people to look in vans, garages and houses in case she was being kept against her will.

Dorset Police has launched a major investigation to find Gaia and has been carrying out forensic examinations of two properties in the Swanage area, as well as searches of land around the town.

The force released two CCTV images of the teenager taken inside St Michael's Garage in Swanage when she bought an ice cream.



Gaia was being driven between Langton Matravers and Swanage by a family member when they stopped off for fuel at around 2.55pm.

The last confirmed sighting of Gaia was at an address in Manor Gardens on Morrison Road in Swanage at about 4pm.






The black jacket Gaia was wearing in the CCTV images was recovered from an address in Manor Gardens.

Forensic investigations are continuing at two properties in Manor Gardens, which are believed to be the homes of a 71-year-old woman and a 19-year-old man. Three vehicles have been seized.

They were released under investigation on Tuesday after being arrested on suspicion of murder by police the previous day.

The search to find the teenager has continued with search teams focusing all their efforts inland in Swanage and the surrounding area, supported by Dorset search and rescue and specialist units from neighbouring police forces.

No others involved in Gaia's death

'No others involved' in Gaia Pope's death


2 minutes ago


There were no injuries to suggest "any other person was involved" in the death of missing teenager Gaia Pope, police have said.

The 19-year-old's body was found on Saturday in a field near Swanage, 11 days after she was last seen.

Dorset Police is treating her death as "unexplained" pending toxicology results.

Three people were arrested on suspicion of murder as part of the investigation and released under investigation.

Det Supt Paul Kessell said: "The post-mortem examination has not identified any injuries to suggest any other person was involved in her death.




"The cause of death is undetermined, pending toxicology. The coroner is involved in the oversight of these examinations but at this time this remains an investigation into an unexplained death."



Miss Pope, who had severe epilepsy, had not been seen since 7 November.

Her disappearance prompted a massive campaign from family and friends who spent days scouring the town.

Items of her clothing were found on Thursday, close to where her remains were found near a coastal path.

Police thanked volunteers for their help in searching for the teenager, but have asked people to stay away from the site due to safety concerns.

Det Supt Kessell added: "I reiterate this area is steep and slippery in an exposed area close to sea cliffs. The area is covered in dense undergrowth and gorse and can present a hazard.

"The area where the body was located is likely to remain cordoned off for some time while forensic examinations and searches are concluded."

I did wonder if this could be natural causes due to her epilepsy or suicide due to the distressed state she was in.
